“Like A Wolf With A Bone” by Shelly Laurenston
Quiet little Darla Lewis couldn’t be happier when the most-feared member of the South’s rowdiest pack kidnaps her. A girl gets real tired of being overprotected by her own shifter family, and there’s nothing like an oh-so-big bad wolf to start a pack feud, unleash her instincts–and have her surrender however and whenever she wants. . .
“Wed Or Dead” by Cynthia Eden
Gage Ryder knew his human bride had a wild side. But spending their honeymoon night on the run from hunters out to finish him and his pack is sure not the kind of fun he was looking forward to. No problem–Gage will do whatever it takes to lay bare Kayla’s secrets and find the truth. If he can keep from being captured by his own seductive game. . .
Like A Wolf With A Bone – Awesome novella addition to Laurenston’s Pack series! I didn’t realize going into this one that it was a prequel of sorts. It actually takes place in the 70’s and is essentially the start of the series with the first couple we’d only seen in passing, Darla and Eggie. First off, love the name Eggie and how Laurenston took me from snorting at the absurdity of the name to finding it endearing quite quickly. Eggie is a big, bad, feared addition to the pack and her prefers to stay on his own…until he rescues Darla from some murdering humans and whisks her away to safety at his house. I enjoyed the look back into this family and coming to understand the dynamics that the two play even in the present. As always a whole slue of secondary characters familiar with the series make appearances that light up the pages with shenanigans unique to this series! Hysterical interactions ensue making this one a captivating and entertaining read!
Laurenston writes southern charm and wit like no one else I have ever read. Her books never cease to make me laugh at the antics of the characters and their egos that know no bounds. Great novella!
Wed or Dead – If you know me at all, you already know that Cynthia Eden is one of my favorite authors. For me to not like her book would take…..well, I don’t really know because it’s never happened. So yeah, I enjoyed this stand alone novella. But really, you should have known that the moment you saw Cynthia Eden’s name on the book.
Kayla is a trained hunter meant to take down the leader of a local pack of wolves named Gage under any circumstances. Even if those circumstances involve marrying him. Which she totally does, but for more reasons then to finish him off after their honeymoon bliss. Gage has grown on her and despite orders and her many secrets she can’t reveal to him, she sides with him. What follows is a whirlwind novella that kept me glued to the pages. In a short amount of time an entire story is told, way more then what you would normally get with this length of book.
Wed or Dead, while being a story line we should all be familiar with at this point (hunter and animal), was a solid read that I enjoyed from beginning to end. It was an easy read full of smoking hot alpha males and a pretty smart (overall) heroine that could hold her own in any situation. Eden writes incredible sex scenes and for that alone I must say..WOW. 🙂
I give Howl For It by Shelly Laurenston and Cynthia Eden 4 stars!
